Designing kitchens takes up a large chunk of my work time, I love the nitty gritty of problem solving with clients, here’s a question I was texted the other day.
Hi Amanda, in our kitchen we have decided on cream shaker style base units only and a mantle over a cream Aga. The room is 4mt x 3mt, I don’t want to close in the space using wall cupboards, what do you think?
Great, a big kitchen, lots of space to play with. I haven’t seen your kitchen so I can only comment on how I approach the problem. Even in large kitchens organizing storage is an issue; all those things that would have been in the wall cupboards need to go somewhere. I love to use a bank of tower cupboards, they swallow up lots of equipment, fridge freezer, oven and washing machine leaving lovely clear space on the walls.
Sounds like a perfect place for an island, made to measure really scores here as you can have one made that fits the space perfectly.
It’s going to be a wonderful clear space, individuality comes from the detail of the top layer. Choose how you want to express your personality, it’s a great place for ecclectic tiles and paintings. A cluster of pendant lights on long cords really add interest to the space, choose carefully they don’t have to cost a fortune.
